Subject Re: hive.metastore.warehouse.dir - Should it point to a physical directory
Date Tue, 21 May 2013 17:59:24 GMT
Hi,

If by "local physical directory" you mean a directory in the underlying OS
file system, then No. You just need to create a directory in HDFS and ad it
to that xml config file.

Thanks,
